New Certificate Programs

A public college or university expecting to offer (a) new certificate programs under 30 credits, or (b) new minors, concentrations, tracks, or options within existing programs is to notify the Commissioner of Higher Education in writing at least 60 days prior to announcing such program changes. These changes do not require action by the Board of Higher Education.
